Understanding OPNFV 91 Artifact Repository – Google Cloud and Docker Hub Git is great for source files, but it is not a good place to store large artifacts such as detailed documentation, Docker images, packages, ISO files, and so on. These are stored in an artifact repository currently hosted on Google Cloud Storage, or in the case of Docker images, on Docker hub. OPNFV Pharos: Community Lab Infrastructure In addition to software infrastructure, OPNFV projects need a corresponding hardware infrastructure project for development, integration, deployment and testing. That's the goal of the Pharos project. Pharos develops a geographically distributed, heterogeneous, community lab infrastructure using bare metal servers. Currently, there are 16 labs hosted by the Linux Foundation and individual companies across North America, Europe and Asia. The diversity of labs in terms of vendors, geography, and CPU architectures is a major asset towards the hardening of OPNFV software. The rigor of testing on Pharos is impressive; for any particular release, Pharos supports the creation and teardown of thousands of OpenStack + SDN controller clusters with multiple tests suites run against them. This is actually superior to the testing performed by corresponding upstream communities. It's no wonder that upstream communities get tremendous value out of OPNFV testing.
